Senator Obama continues to gain support from the music world with the announcement from Hip-Hop artist, Jay-Z that he will give two free pro-Obama concerts this weekend. With these two free performances, Jay-Z will help promote voter registration. The first, which takes place at the Cobo Arena in Detroit on Saturday, will promote voter registration and encourage attendees to get involved in the Obama campaign, according to Detroit's WWJ TV. The push is on in Michigan to register new voters by the October 6 deadline to be eligible to vote in the November 4 election. Anyone who's at least 18 years old can pick up one free ticket at Obama campaign offices throughout southeast Michigan to attend the Detroit show and an accompanying rally. Next, Jay will promote voter registration and Obama's campaign with a show in Miami on Sunday at Bayfront Park, according to the Miami Herald. As in Michigan, Monday is the last day to register to vote for the upcoming election in Florida.
